Scratchpad: Social Networking Applications for Virtual Worlds

Two blog posts in one day about virtual worlds being ripe for the social networking applications: Csven's on Linked-In avatars and Wonderland's on MySpace-like MyMMOG. The wish list so far:
  • A LinkedIn group for avatars or have "Second Life" as a choice of country.
  • SMS (text messaging) to avatar inboxes
  • In-world browser (EVE seems to have one, SL is working on theirs)
  • Inter-world instant messaging
  • Virtual world to real world instant messaging (Pearbook is working on it)
  • One from me: a Craigslist section for virtual worlds.
